Characters I’d Like to Switch Places With / #toptentuesday 178

One of the things I love about reading is being able to sink into a book and losing myself in the story and the world. Especially with some fantasy worlds I can’t help but wonder what it would be like to live there. And sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be the character. Luckily a lot of authors can let us sink into a character so we sort of live the adventure through the character.

For this week’s top ten tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) we are talking about characters we’d like to switch places with. Of course I made a list but I still struggled a little. As I have gotten older I have less interest in switching places with specific characters. I’d rather imagine myself in the world as myself or a form of myself. Even so I still managed to list a few.

Reading Challenge(65)

Alice from Alice in Wonderland

I think everyone knowns Wonderland and Alice. Wonderland is so lovely whymsical. I’d love to see it with my own eyes as I fall down the rabbit hole. Would I make the same decisions?

Asha from Iskari

Look she gets to fight dragons and fly one. I need.

Lazloo from Strange the Dreamer

He gets to work in that library. I want that job.

Any demi-god at Camp Half-Blood from Percy Jackson

While they get attacked by monsters more than I can count the camp experience and seeing the super cool Annabeth would make all up for it. Maybe…

Any Ravenclaw Student at Hogwarts

Come on, you knew that was coming. I need to know how the Ravenclaw common room really looks like and I need to experience being a ravenclaw.

Tiffany Aching from the Tiffany Aching Discworld Arc

The things that Tiffany experiences in Discworld are some of the most fun things. And the way magic is seen is just something I would like to experience for myself.

  1. Ravenclaw sounds pretty good, and Camp Half Blood too. 🙂 I’m not sure if I’m Ravernclaw or Hufflepuff, I tend to get both results depending, so… whatever lol but the Ravenclaw common room sounds good.

  2. Not sure where I would like to switch places with any of this. I did something similar awhile back, so therefore I took another prompt. And yes, I agree with Asha after some thinking haha

  3. I’d want to swap places with Alice as well. I don’t know if I’d want to deal with the creepiness that is the Cheshire Cat but just to be in the whimsical world of Wonderland would be such an amazing experience. And as a Ravenclaw, I’d also love to swap places with any of those students just to discover that common room.

  4. Great list! Lazlo is a really good choice, being raised in a huge library would be so much fun. I’d love to explore Wonderland for the day, too, as long as there was a guarantee I could come back!

  5. I’m with you on not wanting to switch places with characters, and more about living in the world. I also struggled to put my list together. But you picked some great characters! I never considered Alice. I don’t know if I’m brave enough to willingly go into Wonderland, however…

    Today, I’d love to switch places with Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. I’m feeling awfully romantic. 🙂

  6. I like your choices! Any person working in a library or book store would be great 🙂 As long as it’s a calm & relaxed library haha

    Also, a Ravenclaw would be fun! You stay away from all the Gryffindor/Slytherin drama for most of the time & can enjoy being a Hogwarts student.

  7. Tja, je weet mijn antwoord natuurlijk al hé. Mij ga je kunnen vinden in een rustig hoekje van de Hogwarts bibliotheek met mijn neus tussen een boek. Alice zou ik niet achter na willen gaan want ik denk dat ik de hele tijd in Wonderland zo in de war zou zijn dat ik het gevoel zou hebben dat mijn suiker veel te laag staat. 🙂
